I was doing some reading about running a site and building readership and one of the things that was suggested time after time was to narrow down your topic and find your niche, but I really can’t do that. All the interest in the cell phone postings lately has made me rethink that some, but I’m just not interested enough in cell phones to write about them exclusively. It turns out that I’m not interested enough in ANYTHING to write about it exclusively, well not anything that would draw any readership. What does this mean for the readers? Well, more general tech stuff, anything I find interesting, I just have to hope you will too!
A second piece of advice I heard several places was to put a face and some biographical data up, people like to know who’s providing the information. I agree with this, it’s always good to be able to put a face with a “voice” and so to that end – that’s me in a suit (gotta look professional right? How else I’m I going to get people to believe I’m an authority for articles like 5 SUPER AMAZING Uses For Soap!) I’ve updated the About Page and I’m going to try and badger the other contributors into giving me good bio information as well, so check that page every once in a while and thanks for visiting!
One of my favorite authors and fellow South Carolinian has passed away yesterday, Robert Jordan (James Oliver Rigney, Jr.) died at 2:45 Sunday Sept. 16th, 2007. The author of the Wheel of Time series was working on the final book at the time of his death. It sounds like the final volume will be published in some form and that he had laid out the plot and story lines to his family. I will certainly miss his writing! Here is the announcement from Dragonmount, Robert Jordan’s site:
It is with great sadness that I tell you that the Dragon is gone. RJ left us today at 2:45 PM. He fought a valiant fight against this most horrid disease. In the end, he left peacefully and in no pain. In the years he had fought this, he taught me much about living and about facing death. He never waivered in his faith, nor questioned our God’s timing. I could not possibly be more proud of anyone. I am eternally grateful for the time that I had with him on this earth and look forward to our reunion, though as I told him this afternoon, not yet. I love you bubba.
Our beloved Harriet was at his side through the entire fight and to the end. The last words from his mouth were to tell her that he loved her.
Thank each and everyone of you for your prayers and support through this ordeal. He knew you were there. Harriet reminded him today that she was very proud of the many lives he had touched through his work. We’ve all felt the love that you’ve been sending my brother/cousin. Please keep it coming as our Harriet could use the support.
Jason will be posting funeral arrangements.
My sincerest thanks.
Peace and Light be with each of you,
4th of 3
